Updating avid chip info
Another reason a microchip cannot be a GPS is size.
To add a power source to the microchip, you would need to add a battery compartment inside the chip (making it a lot larger than the current injectable size), and your pet would need to be “plugged in” to charge, sort of like an electric car.
First, it’s important to clarify how a microchip works.
When a microchip is implanted in your pet, the chip comes with a unique identification number that will remain associated with the pet for eternity, similar to a social security number that is assigned to humans in the U. The microchip can be scanned, and the number detected, by any universal scanner at a vet’s office or animal shelter.

While you do not have access to our full suite of proactive services, we will notify you and arrange for your pet's return as soon as he is found.
The number is then associated with the information you have provided on the microchip registry such as pet’s name, age, sex, date of birth and medical information, along with your contact information, such as an address and phone numbers.
That’s when the microchip uses the energy produced by the scanner to emit a unique code, which then appears on the scanner.
